Washing Machine Recommendation?

Recommended Posts

We need one too.  Wanted Whirlpool...cheapest place so far is in Chapala.  $6,199.00 at the store as you are driving toward Soriana look to the right.  It is the store that has steps up to the doors.  They sell motorcycles in the front, appliances in the back.

But our dentist who is Mexican says Mabe is excellent, bought his at walmart and no problems.  Has had it for 3 years.

I am surprised this is the cheapest place, maybe for that model Whirlpool. "THESE STORES" like  Coppel etc mainly sell items on "time" and products are marked up accordingly

And their cash or credit card prices do not reflect the usurious rates they charge for house financing. Gosh, just like NOB places.

yes i was surprised too with these stores.  BUT we needed a all in one computer, you know without the tower and they had an incredible sale if you bought it outright, no payments and it was $290 US !!  Normally $650US !!

Just be sure to get a front loader. It's much easier on your clothing, and uses less water and soap.

Not everyone can afford a front loader, and they must have a well-balanced place to be set up.  Agree they're great..... but if you control the water levels, top loaders are good value for the price.  And  taking the time to manage soap levels carefully means less product used, and cleaners clothes after rinse cycle.

Talked to a service repairman for appliances and he recommended Whirlpool.   Bought at Tio Sam’s because they have aleays provided us good service in the past.  Fits your prove requirements

buy mechanical models, not electronic. The electricity grid shreds electronics.

We bought a Samsung at Costco but Sams had them as well. It is amazing how quiet they are. Of course these newer ones don't have a dasher in the center and that makes them easier on your clothes.

Years ago we had one without an agitator and I found that it stretched the clothes out of shape. I surmised that the clothes were entangled and then stretched across the drum as it spun. You don't find that?

Not only that, my experience shows that you really need top-notch water pressure with an electronic washer, because with low pressure, the electronics cannot properly sense the loads or the time.

Might depend on the brand or model. My water is gravity fed from the rooftop tinako and my Samsung electronic machine works fine. The motherboard did give up the ghost after 5 years, due to electric brown-outs and surges, but I found a new one (wasn't easy) and changed it myself and has been going strong for the last 2 years. I now have it on a voltage regulator, but just to be on the safe side, I unplug it between uses. I also have better gravity fed pressure than many, as the tinako is a 2500 liter and has about a 6 meter drop to the washer outlet.
